My Early Valentine's Present
This lovely dish is my Valentine's present, thanks OH. It is Tain Pottery and i have been collecting items in this design, which is called Fearn, for a while. The pottery is all handpainted and i love the bumble bees and flowers. It is also oven, freezer and dishwasher proof. I think this size is perfect for a crumble.
I have 6 dinner plates, 3 side plates and 6 bowls and I don't believe in keeping them for best so I use them every day.
I have decided to mix in a few of their tartan designs and you can see i have started with a couple of bowls. You can also see the yellow minion plates which i use when the Grandkids come just peeping in the background.
I accidentally picked up these in their Buchanan design! I have to admit that i only ever buy their seconds as half the time i can't see much difference with them and the firsts and of course it means i get them cheaper.
The darker green/blue tartan design is called Forbes and i took my bowl from the firsts pile and asked the sales assistant if it could possibly be a second. It was a bit cheaky of me but there weren't any in the seconds and after at first saying no, she then said she was sure she could see a pinprick in the design so i could have it at the seconds price!
I have a few odd pieces of the pottery, the jug is Forbes but the other two are just samples i think.
I will continue building up a tartan collection bit by bit and in the meantime enjoy using those that i have.
